Jet Lag

Two cross-country flights in 24 hours and I'm wrecked. Maybe I'm not cut out for a jet-setter's lifestyle.

#54 -- "The Great Divide" by Studs Terkel

I probably haven't read anything by Studs since college; I'm pretty sure this wasn't one I've read. It's an affecting overview of the 1980s done in Terkel's oral history style. Some of the interviews are very inspiring; some very sad. It's an interesting feeling to be learning considerably more about a decade that I lived through.

Adding to the list of "things I find inside used books":

Wow, four more of those and you'll get a prize. I'd be on pins and needles if it was me.

Yeah, at the very least they might make me mayor of Frogtown or whatever.
